Though it looks lovely, scientists revealed that the occurrence of pink snow in the Arctic is caused by red algae that help in rapid ice melting. As temperature increases, the spread of the red algae in cold places could supercharge global warming.
A new study revealed that surface water in the Antarctic ocean is being pushed northward, which allows the old,deep water to surface, delaying the effects of global warming in the Antarctic.
A new study of more than 6,000 marine fossils from Antarctica reveals that the mass extinction event, which killed dinosaurs, was sudden and just as deadly to life in the polar regions.
